TRAC FM in partnership with the National Union of Persons with Disabilities in Uganda (NUDIPU) is conducting a national campaign to drum up awareness on disability rights to promote equal opportunities for Persons With Disabilities in Uganda.

Common Matters 2: The Land Rights Campaign

Goal: Empower citizens by helping them to understand, respect and defend their land rights and be vigilant when they are challenged.

Compulsory land acquisition for public works: who will ensure that residents get fair and adequate compensation?

In 2017, President Yoweri embarked on nationwide radio campaign to sensitize the public about the need to amend Article 26 of the Constitution of Uganda to allow the government to take over private land for public works before compensating the owners. This proposal has been widely criticized as a violation of rights.

Evictions in Uganda: Why do they happen?

The increased use of land as a commodity and the increasing demand for land has resulted in more evictions, both lawful and unlawful. In this blog, we look into more detail to find out the exact drivers behind evictions.

Environmental Alert: Deforestation in Uganda, Can agroforestry come to the rescue?

Agroforestry is an agricultural practice whereby trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops and pastureland. Agroforestry could mitigate some of the negative consequences caused by rampant deforestation in Uganda (200.000 acres per year -> 1.8% of forest cover).

HEPS: Acting on the earliest signs of Malaria

UWONET : Debating the Marriage and Divorce Bill

The controversial ‘Marriage and Divorce Bill’ aims to reform and redress the gender imbalance that have existed in Marriage and Divorce Acts in Uganda, both dating from 1906. While several consultations by the Uganda Law Reform Commisison made proposes in the 1960’s for the need for reform of the marriage and divorce Acts, there have been numerous misconceptions and myths surrounding the proposed Bill.

RAHU: Youth Friendly Health Services

What if you fear to ask your doctor?
Adolescents have specific health needs and often fear to approach health services. That is why specialized youth-friendly health services (YFHS) have started to roll out in Uganda. YFHS are regulated under the ‘Ugandan Adolescent Health Policy’. This policy is currently under review as it lacks clear guidelines on how the services should be implemented. The TRAC FM campaign, therefore, aimed to provide insight into the health needs for adolescents and the barriers they face in the current provision of YFHS.

ISER: Contracting private schools in public education

Getting parents to follow the money
The introduction of Universal Primary Education (UPE) resulted in a high demand for secondary education. To deal with this high demand, the government of Uganda in 2007 started to contract private schools to provide education to public students.
